Does that make sense? Cold air can hold less moisture than warm air, so cooling the air first through the air conditioning system reduces the amount of water in the air. Cooling reduces the humidity before the air is warmed so it emerges with very low vapor content and a high capacity to absorb water vapor. Air is forced out of vents so it moves along the interior side of the windshield and the driver’s and front passenger’s windows. Heating wire embedded between sheets of glass in the rear windshield clears the fog there.
